Oh my goodness sakes… this day, y’all!! 2018 is off to one heck of a good start, let’s just say that! I don’t even know how I’m going to put this all into words because it was THAT incredible. First of all – Pat & Tillie were married on May 5th. WHICH MEANS – not only was it an epic Cinco de Mayo celebration, but it was also Derby Day and both were fully embraced on this day! There were chips & queso during cocktail hour, people!! Need I say more?!

Pat & Tillie were married in the middle of the woods (probably going to copy that idea if I get married one day, I won’t lie!), and had a beautiful tent reception in the backyard of Tillie’s home where she grew up. Does it get any more special than that?! Every detail that Tillie dreamt up was flawlessly executed by Whitney from Confetti Events and good grief it was stunning!

These two are some of the most kind and incredible people you’ll ever meet – so you can only imagine how perfect everything about this day was. I don’t think I can pick a favorite part from their day. From the sweetest, tearful first look, stunningly beautiful ceremony, driving into the middle of the woods for epic just married photos, the lantern send-off… dreams really do come true, you guys!! <3

Pat & Tillie – thank you for being so wonderful and inviting me to share in such an amazing day alongside you. It was the biggest honor and I just love you guys!!  <3

Much love,

Jessica Lauren
